- It's been a busy week of recruiting for the Ducks. On Sunday, Oregon snagged its third offensive line commit in as many days as Jake Hanson announced his verbal commitment to the Ducks. Hanson is three-star lineman out of Eureka, Calif. and is ranked 65th at his position in the nation.
- Over the weekend, the Ducks offered a scholarship to Travis Waller, a 4-star quarterback out of Anaheim, Calif. Earlier this month, Waller had said Alabama, Northwestern, Notre Dame and Ohio State were his top four choices. 2015 could be an important year at the quarterback position for the Ducks if Marcus Mariota leaves for the NFL a year early after this season.
- Fresh off bringing home Oregon's first men's track national championship in 30 years, head coach Robert Johnson was named the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Men’s Head Coach of the Year. Andy Powell was named the Men’s Assistant Coach of the Year. This marks the first time an Oregon coach has won either of the awards for the outdoor season.
- Another Duck has officially turned pro as Tommy Thorpe signed with the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. Thorpe was selected in the eighth round by the Cubs in this year's MLB draft.

Question: How do I get one of these installed in my bachelor pad in Seattle to piss off any Husky fans who visit?
